Exciting update for all Blantyre history enthusiasts! You’re all used to seeing 1 or 2 articles a day.
Well, throughout October and November, there’s going to be MANY more articles coming!
There’s currently about 200 new posts already scheduled here for those 2 months alone! I’ve been working very hard during evenings and weekends the last few months to bring you lots of fantastic, new, quality information especially around the Blantyre Pit Disaster and remembering Blantyre soldiers lives from WW1 and WW2.
Of course, there will also be loads of brand new “auld” photos of Blantyre which I hope you’ve not seen before. I’ve still got some way to go before that ever “dries up!”
I’m also turning attention to the many dozens of Blantyre outstanding ancestry requests on the main website. And…as been the case in recent weeks, I’ll be continuing to explore the late Victorian era in Blantyre. Admittedly, all that research has distracted me from completing book drafts, but at least for now, you’re about to see an incredible amount of fresh, brand new content right here!
As I like to say, even after all these years….after all the daily articles…. “I’m only just getting started with Blantyre History” and there’s plenty more to come!!

Agnes Yates Thank you. I will look forward to reading a lot of Blantyre, my home town. I’ve been away since 1966 but have many cousins ( Johnstons) still living there…… Good luck with your research.
